A SHIELD STORY 



JOE H3GCINS paused ttin 
4m a fMftiight to glince 
it hit watch. Around him 
twirled a thick white fog. Sud- 
denly • short, stocky man hur- 
ried up and thrust a package 
into his ha n eta. Startled, Joe 
held the package for a mo* 
event at the little man scuttled 
up the street, Then he tore a 
corner of it and gasped. The 
package contained a bundle of 
hundred "dollar bills. Joe start* 
cd in pursuit of the mysteri- 
ous stranger. A few minutes 
later he was surprised to see 
the man enter the town house 
of Roger Callway. "Well! 
This is interesting/* thought 
Joe. "What on earth i* Roger 
Callway doing handing out 
packages of money to stran- 
gers? It looks like blackmail 
to me" Swiftly his mind re- 
called certain facts about Call- 
way. He had been prominent 
in government work until, sud- 
denly and inexplicably, he had 
changed from a clear-thinking 
patriot to one of the country's 
most rabid isolationist*. He 
maintained h i • isolationist 



views even after Pearl Harbor* 
rtnii earning the dislike of 
most of his former friends. 

As Joe rang the bell he 
wondered who could be black- 
mailing Callway, and for what 
reason. Callway answered the 
door himself. "Good evening, 
Mr, Callway. I believe you 
gave me this package by mis* 
take" 

Callway let out a gasp. 
"Mistake! You mean you were- 
n't waiting for — " Instinctive- 
ly he checked himself and 
said, "Er, I mean— what — er, 
package?" 

"This package," said Joe 
grimly. "This package of hun- 
dred dollar bills." 

"You must be mistaken," 
Callway exclaimed hastily. "I 
don't know anything about iti 
I haven't been out all night." 

"You're lying," said Joe, 
sharply. "I know you've been 
out ($f your shoes are still 
wet You're going to explain 
this money to mo or to die 
police!" 

*Tlio police! No* oo> don't 



do that!" gasped CMlwiy, Til 
tell you whit I can. Fm being 
blackmailed and IV* got to 
pay that money on the second 
day of every month. I don't 
know what will happen b* 
cause I failed to do it tonight* 

**Don*t worry* foe tot» 

rupted, "today happens to be 
the first. This may prove to 
be a lucky mistake for you. 
If you tell me the truth, and 
if anything can be done. Til 
get my friend the Shield to 
help you." 

Callway's face lit up. "The 
Shield! Do you think ho— but 
no, even he can't help/* Call* 
way sighed wearily. "The 
worst of it is that after this 
payment I can't raise another 
cent. Maybe I'd better tell you* 
about it, Come inside." In a ' 
tired voice Callway spoke^ 
"Most people have forgotten - 
that I had a- young son. Ho 
was aboard the Athcnia who 

* ■ 

ft was torpedoed in f 39. 
After months of hoping he 
might have been saved I gave 
him up for dead. Then one 



day a stranger came and told 
ma he had been picked up by 
a German submarine and was 
being held in a German con- 
centration camp. If I wished 
him to remain alive he told 
mt I had to pay ten thousand 
deltas a month for hit up* 
Imp, and also use my position 
It inftienct people of this 
country not to enter the war. 

"I became furiously angry 
and threatened to go to the 
authorities but he laughed and 
•aid if I did, no one would 
believe me, and my son would 
be killed. It left me with no 
choic*." 

"HW said Joe, as Call- 
way paused, "how do you 
know your son is alive?" 

With shaking hands Call* 
Way held out several pictures. 
'These pictures. You see, 1 
demanded proof at least every 
•ix months.* 

Joe examined the pictures 
thoughtfully and then asked 
If he might borrow one. As 
be prepared to leave he said, 
"make the payment as usual 
tomorrow night, and 1*11 see 
that the Shield is there. He'll 
find a way to help." 



ment he sprang out and over- 
powered the blackmailer. Hast- 
ily he went through the thug's 
pockets until he found an en- 
velope in one pocket. Then he 
turned to Callway and handing 
him a gun he found in the 
Nazi agent's possession* he 
told him to guard him *till a 
policeman came. 

Callway turned on the 
Shield and spoke bitterly. "The 
police could have done this! 
Now my son will be killed.** 

**1 can*t explain,** shouted 
ihe Shield as he sped away, 
"but 1*11 get your son" 



The next night the Shield 
crouched in a doorway. When 
he saw Callway make the pay- 



The next day the Shield ar* 
rived in a small town called 
Woodstock. His first stop was 
the postoifice where he asked 
the postmistress if she recog- 
nized the handwriting on the 
envelope taken from the black- 
mailer. "Why, yes," she ex- 
claimed. "It's BUI Cramer's. 
He lives on the top of Ohayo 
Mountain.* 4 

A short time later the Shield 
approached the Cramer farm. 
A burley man came out and 
ordered him to leave. Then 
i second man carrying a shot- 
gun appeared. Before he could 
raise it the Shield leaped upon 
him. There was a bitter strug- 



gle as the men used every 
vicious trick they knew to dis- 
able him, but the Shield final- 
ly overpowered them. Then he 
burst into the house and after 
a hasty search found Donald 
Callway locked in a small 
basement room. After dragging 
the two captors of Donald to 
the sheriff's office, the Shield 
and the boy hurried back to 
the city. 

At the sight of his son, 
Roger Callway nearly fainted. 
-"But how did you know ha 
wasn't in Germany, Shield?" 

The Shield grinned. *Tht 
pictures gave me the clue. I 
wondered how they smuggled 
them in. Then I looked closely 
at the one Joe Higgins bor- 
rowed, and noticed something. 
I magnified the picture and 
found a typical American RFD 
box in the background. The 
envelope postmarked Wood- 
stock that* I took from the 
blackmailer's pocket furnished 
the right location. You see, 
Donald was picked up by a 
German Sub, but they landed 
him in America in the custody 
of these three Nari agents. It 
" was a lucky mistake that you 
made when you paid your 
blackmail money the wrong 
day! You have your son, and 
the government has three Nasi 
prisoners!"
